    Please Help! My 1998 transalp refuses to start whenever it has rained or been cold and damp. When left to dry in the sun she starts and runs well. I know this could be anything electrical and was thinking of replacing the ignition coils to start with. Any ideas what else to try. Many Thanks

    Read in Practical classic bike mag about fitting Stick coils to older bikes. Read elsewhere that they need to be matched to the electrical system of the bike? What's your experience/advice?
  13. HT wires, Sparkplug wires.

  17. Alternator coils 250R 82.

    XL
    To my understanding there are 3 coils producing 3 separate live feeds, one to the headlight only, one to the ignition for spark, one for all other lights/battery recharging. If I suspect the ignition coil as gone down! could i test by perhaps using the hesdlight coil feed to power the ignition...

    Hello ! I have some problems with a RD03 : some time ago one of the CDI units burned . The engine runed perfect until then(30.000 km after I bought it), so I concluded that it just broke. I ordered a new one and instaled it , not on the same place ( same line ) with the broken one ...
  19. Ignition coils, are they mostly the same?

    Dominator / FMX
    FMX650, FX650 etc etc. Are the ignition coils all the same? After looking for an ignition coil for my FMX650 and no luck, i looked at some of the other models and they appear to be identical. They all have the same engine anyway. So it will be fine to buy one for another model and use on mine...
  20. RD03 how do i check coils ??

    Africa Twin
    Hi all, Before i get my carbs overhauled (god knows how much that'll cost) to try to eliminate them from my mysterious misfire, is there any way of checking the coils to elimate them first ??
